I tweet about blogging a lot. Blogging is my main source of income, the thing I spend the most of my life doing and the thing that makes up the majority of my thoughts on any given day. So I think it’s pretty standard that I’m going to talk about it a lottttttt. A little while ago, I mentioned that I had over 30 posts scheduled for the coming months on my blog and that tweet got one hell of a response from praise, awe and just general disbelief. Not tooting my own horn here whatsoever but as I said, blogging is my main “thing”, it’s not just a here-and-there hobby to me any more, I take it extremely seriously so I don’t think it should be that much of a surprise that I’m so organised with my blog.
Self care should be a part of all of our lives and daily routines but we have to remember that self care looks different for everyone. Whilst someone might consider a relaxing bubble bath with candles and a book a valid form of self care, someone else would rather go for a run or head to the gym for a banging workout. Which is also valid. And self care certainly doesn’t have to mean the big things either, the actively taking time out of your day to do some sort of “self care activity”. Basic self care is just as important and over the last few years – when I’ve learnt what self care actually is and how valuable it is – I’ve gradually started to incorporate into my day, every day, without even thinking about it anymore.
